talk couldn't get the votes. they pulled it shortly before midnight. jon karl is watching it all from capitol hill. the speaker says he'll try again today. >> reporter: he will, but, gege, this debt ceiling crisis has become a political crisis for republicans. boehner will convene all 240 house republicans this morning to make one final push for it. but the reason he pulled the bill last night is he just couldn't get enough republicans to pass his own bill. republican leaders worked late into the night trying to get the votes to pass their own debt ceiling bill. reporters swarmed around utah republican jason chafitz. he told us he's still not sure. >> i'm surprised they are not twisting and ripping arms off. >> reporter: the speaker said he can't do his job if you respect there to support him. >> i am fully supportive of the speaker. i just can't support his bill but i do support the speaker. >> reporter: but for speaker of the house john boehner, the political stakes could not be higher. >> his leadership of the republicans in the house and being speaker is clearly at stake here if h

from him. former utah governor jon huntsman is running for president, despite the fact that no one outside of utah knows who jon huntsman is. they did a story about him last night on "nightline." this is his first campaign ad. this is for real. and i guess the idea is to show people what a regular guy he is. >> this man, a successful two-term conservative governor of utah. some see a man of the world. his family sees the world's best pancake chef, who makes a mean egg white omelet. a dad who listens, practical jokes. cranks up the rock. the dad who won't make dinner reservations because his favorite restaurant cartrton't take them. mary kay has mentioned she'd like to eat somewhere nice some day. but that day seems yet to arrive.

karl is in washington and has more on all this. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. there is no presidential candidate with more momentum right now than michele bachmann. ♪ my home in -- >> reporter: no republican presidential candidate has taken a harder line on the debt ceiling showdown than michele bachmann. >> we were all shocked and appalled that president obama dangled out in front of the cameras that senior citizens may not get their checks. that's a very dangerous statement to make. we don't believe -- excuse me. excuse me. we don't believe that for a moment. >> reporter: tough talk from bachmann is nothing new but she now speaks with new-found authority as a top tier contender for the republican presidential nomination. a new national poll puts bachmann firmly in second place as the leading challenger to front-runner mitt romney. and in key first caucus state iowa, three separate polls over the past week put bachmann in first place. >> republican primary voters are looking for somebody who has -- brings some excitement, who brings something different to t

that to happen. >> with that let me bring in our team. jake tapper, jon karl on capitol hill. jon, given the deadlock, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he doesn't think a deal can be reached so calm up with a last-ditch fallback. >> reporter: last choice option, only if the talks completely collapse. it's complicated but the bottom line is, it would give the president the authority on his own to gradually raise that debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion between now and the election. the political burden is all the president's. he can do it without spending cuts and even in the face of opposition from the majority in congress. i talked to a lot of republicans in the house, rank and file, who say it's not acceptable. they want real spending cut, a lot of them and nothing else. >> there's no guarantee of spending cuts even though it would avoid tax increases. any openness in the white house to that and where do they think the talks are right now? are they as pessimistic as mr. mcconnell? >> reporter: well, mcconnell's deal sent two signals to the white house, one, good news to them

. abc's jon karl joins us from washington. all talks secret up until now. what more do we know about what president obama and the speaker of the house have been discussing. >> reporter: a big deal here, george. as you mentioned, this would mean that the president would go along with reductions in spending to social security and medicare, most likely cost of living increases going down and in exchange republicans would accept some increase in tax revenues as part of an overhaul of the tax code. as one top administration told me, we need to do something unthinkable on entitlements. they need to do something unthinkable on tacks. >> unthinkable may be the word. these talks have been going on between the president and speaker boehner but there hasn't been a lot of discussion among a wider conferences in the house and the senate democrats and republicans and i guess the big question coming out of today's meeting, when other leaders find out about it, is it something they can work with and is it something that will fly? >> reporter: a great question. boehner and the president may be able t

the latest for us overnight. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we are reaching crisis time here on capitol hill. the republicans delayed a vote on their bill in the house because they don't even have enough republican votes to pass their own bill. democrats don't have the votes to pass their bill either. the only thing certain up here right now is that everything is in doubt. >> we appreciate you calling. >> reporter: the calls are pouring in. plenty of outrage but like congress itself, the callers seem hopelessly divided. >> i would really like for him to hold the line against any deal in congress. >> i am calling to ask that you cooperate with the president's efforts. >> reporter: the whole place seems to have broken down. republicans can't even convince some of their own members to vote for the republican plan. in a closed door meeting republican leader eric cantor told fellow conservatives to "stop whining and support the bill." acknowledging "the debt limit vote sucks." across the country, that's the view of washington itself. >> no one is certainly listening to the pe
